Robotic Machining Cell Unveiling - Event Recap
“The Robotic Machining Cell is 6,000 square feet and the new process can reduce manufacturing times up to 50 per cent”
-Thane Russell, Absolute Completion Technologies Vice President, Business Development and Technology.
On April 22nd, 2015 we hosted a technology unveiling event for our new robotic machining cell, which is an automated production cell for the manufacture of downhole well completion tools for the oil and gas industry.
With a growing business and an increasing number of employees, this cell is an exciting addition to our capabilities. Even though this production unit can do the work of five people, “not a single employee has been replaced by this investment” -Thane Russell.
